V 2 ROCKET BOMB
MADE AIR WEAPONS OBSOLETE LONDON, July 12. The day the V 2 rocket bomb was launched against Britain, every other form of air weapon was rendered obsolete, declared a former Minister of Aircraft Production, Lord Brabazon, to-day. "I hope that fact will be rammed into the minds of everyone in Britain," he said. "This is a terrifying infant. "A scientist, Lord Cherwell, recently tried to diminish its possible powers. How silly! The rocket is only in its infancy. "There are only two things to do about this new form of warfare— either suppress it, or lead the world in this technique.
"I do not want to see Britain driven into a fool's paradise of complacency as to what will happen in the future."
